I have downloaded the latest version of a Torchlight 2 synergies mod, and updated Torchlight 2 to version My question is, how can I install it on my PC? Since I'm not using Steam, so its only an offline game.

I've saved it into the Mods and Modsave folders, but it's still not working. I've also tried the Torchlight2 Mod Launcher, but that didn't help, either?

What's the easiest way to do this?

  • According to the installation instructions I can find, you need to dump it into the PAKS folder.

According to the instructions I found for this mod, it needs to be installed into the PAKS folder, not Mods or Modsave.

The hardest thing about installing mods for Torchlight 2 pre-guts is knowing where your PAK directory is. it will either be in 1 of the 2 following places, For RUNIC downloaded Torchlight 2 it should be:

C:\Program Files\Torchlight II\PAKS

for STEAM downloaded Torchlight 2 it should be: (either x86 or non x86 depending on your 64bit?)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Torchlight II\PAKS

    That is pre guts and therefore, outdated. If you bought the game legitimately and updated the game, which you are forced to by either Steam or the games launcher, my instructions work. He just does not have a legit copy of it, that is why it does not work.

  • @JohnDoeSanta I'm just pointing out the instructions that come with the mod. I figure it's worth a shot. If they're incorrect, the makers should really update those directions.

    Torchlight II is also available via the GOG.com website. Commented Jan 17, 2017 at 14:55

Installing mods for Torchlight 2 is fairly easy:

Put the folder of the mod into Documents\my games\runic games\torchlight 2\mods and then launch ModLauncher.exe from the Torchlight 2 game folder, activate the mod and run Torchlight 2. It is important to preserve the folder the mod lives in. So for example the mod respec potions, the final folder path is Documents\my games\runic games\torchlight 2\mods\respec potion\respec_potion.mod

The easiest way however is just to subscribe to the mods you want on Steam Workshop.

  • @CrixalisPaul Well, as I wrote, go to Documents\my games\runic games\torchlight 2\mods\ and put the file you have into a folder called "Synergies". That should do it.
